Hypnotherapy can often be extremely effective for the symptomatic relief of Tinnitus. During your sessions I will use a range of basic techniques, as well as teach you some self-hypnosis techniques to help reduce, control or even eliminate your awareness of your symptoms.
Once you have learned these techniques they are fairly easy to apply and can be put to use in almost any situation, even those 'quiet' moments when your symptoms may often be at their worse. After treatment the overall level of your Tinnitus should appear to be decreased and turned down, so that it no longer seems to be so intrusive. In some cases you may even be able to 'turn it off' for periods.
Hypnosis can help reduce the symptoms of Tinnitus in most cases, although it is not necessarily a 'cure' in medical terms. Using hypnotherapy will help you reduce your awareness of the Tinnitus, so how you experience the symptoms is greatly reduced and it becomes less intrusive or impairing in your life. This will involve an element of self-hypnosis, which as mentioned you will be taught as part of your sessions.
Hypnotherapy can also be used to address any emotional factors which may contribute to your symptoms and help reduce stress which can also be a major aggravator of Tinnitus.
